Canadian TV Ratings: August 11-17, 2014

This week was a mixed bag with some pretty dramatic rises and falls.

Monday’s MasterChef and Under The Dome both fell when compared to last week and the drops were pretty steep. MasterChef lost 205,000 viewers from last week, while Under The Dome shed nearly 300,000.

On Tuesday, the news was far better. The Amazing Race Canada gained over 300,000 viewers and is now toeing the three-million-viewer mark. The companion after showAfter The Race, also made it onto the list of top-30 programs of the week and took the 29th spot. Despite the hefty competition, America’s Got Talent actually rose over on City, not by much though. It gained 8,000, but that’s better than losing viewers.

Over on Wednesday Big Brother earned 111,000 more viewers, while Extant shed 91,000. That was enough for Big Brother to claim the title of most popular program for the day.

Thursday’s primetime showing of The Big Bang Theory gained 275,000 viewers from last week. That made it possible for The Big Bang Theory to be the biggest show on Thursday and the fourth most popular program of the week.

One of the biggest surprises happened to take place on Saturday night when W5 made it onto the chart as the third most popular show of the day with 932,000 tuning in.
